ONGOING PROJECTS – INHOUSE
1. IDENTIFICATION AND ESTIMATION OF HORTICULTURE AREA AND SITE SELECTION OF PROCESSING UNITS IN ANDHRA PRADESH
Sponsored by: - Government of Andhra Pradesh/ APSAC
Objectives: The objective of the assignment is mapping the spread of the horticulture to identify the suitable locations for post harvest processing industries and location of cold storage to ensure support and adequate returns to farmers.
Data set: Merged Imagery of Cartosat-1 PAN 2.5 m+ LISS IV MX 5.8 m
Output: Map of horticulture area in Andhra Pradesh.
Spatial and non-spatial (attribute information) database for various horticulture crops including the information on micro irrigation. Possible site zones for various levels of post harvest processing units.

2. URBAN LAKE/POND CONSERVATION PLAN
Sponsored by: Government of Andhra Pradesh/ APSAC
Objective: Urban Local bodies are under serious threat of encroachment and pollution due to rapid growing rate of urbanization and industrialisation. The main objective is to identify the lakes vulnerable to encroachment and feeder channels under threats for better planning for action against encroachment of lakes/ponds, assist for alternative way for sewage diversion, planning for conservation to improve the overall lake environment and its surroundings for enriched biodiversity. The data can be shared by all the implementing agencies to work in coordinated manner to draw suitable action plan for the lakes/ponds which are under serious threats.
Data set: Merged Imagery of Cartosat-1 PAN 2.5 m+ LISS IV MX 5.8 m
Output: Creating a vulnerability index of the lakes Map of encroachment area of lakes/ ponds Identification of changes in the feeder channels blocking the inflow into the lakes
Scale: 1:5000
